Macs get viruses too!
The myth that Macs are resilient to viruses may have been accurate 10 years ago, but due to the growing prevalence of the operating system, the number of malicious programs has grown as well. Mac users can’t simply browse anywhere on the web and expect to be immune simply because of OSX. Cat Tech encourages all computer users to frequently scan their computer with an antivirus of choice. Another excellent way to help stop viruses is to download an ad block extension for your web browser. Ad blocks are designed to block all ads, whether they are simply advertisements or lead to malware. If you are struggling with viruses on your computer, bring it into Cat Tech! We can get you fixed and on your way as well as show you how to prevent future infections.
Should I upgrade to a solid state drive?
Switching out your hard drive for a solid state drive (SSD) can seem daunting, but it’s often worth the time. SSDs are faster than traditional hard drives, as well as less likely to fail. They are also much less expensive than they used to be. A solid state drive may still cost more than a traditional hard drive of the same storage size, but you’re also purchasing speed, reliability, and a longer lifespan. Come in to Cat Tech and talk to us about upgrading to an SSD today!
